Tiny Treasures

The sales of everyone who lists on Etsy are being affected by the economy, in my opinion, but I think this is especially true for artists whose goods are not perceived as essential or otherwise useful. Furthermore, buyers do not seem to be as interested as they once were in buying large fine art photography prints. They may, however, be interested in collecting fine art photography at more affordable prices. That's why I am now offering small collectibles, which are prints 4"x6" in size and smaller, all priced at 5 USD or less.

Also, the small prints of Polaroids in that section of my shop are nice to collect for another reason besides cost, which is that the small 4"x5" size print is quite close to the size of the original objet d'art. Collecting small reproductions is definitely a nice alternative to collecting original Polaroids, which are very expensive!

I'll be stocking up my shop with more of these tiny treasures! I hope you'll stop by frequently to see what new small collectibles will be appearing!

Your work is beautiful and what a great way to try and deal with this struggling economy. Maybe I can do something like that...have pictures of my jewelry with a note that says "This can be yours and soon as someone straightens out the economic disaster" lol. Great blog!
